Word has broken that an altercation took place early Sunday morning at the Rogue Bar in Scottsdale that resulted in two people being stabbed.

According to Scottsdale Police officials and a number of posts on Facebook, a dispute took place between patrons of the music venue about 1:30 a.m. during the weekly Rebel Yell dance night and escalated into violence.

Sergeant Mark Clark of the Scottsdale Police Department says two male patrons at the Rogue confronted the suspect in the stabbing, claiming he was hitting on their girlfriends. The man pulled a knife and stabbed one of his accusers in the face and the other in the arm. It is unknown whether the incident took place inside the bar or in the parking lot outside.

(UPDATE: Another Rebel Yell patron who witnessed the stabbing has disputed Scottsdale P.D.'s claim that the dispute was over the victim's girlfriends and other facts presented in the official report. More info is available on our follow-up blog.)

Local musician Katey Trowbridge, a keyboard player with The Rebel Set, was at the Rogue and witnessed the aftermath of the stabbing. She told New Times that she was standing at the bar with venue owner Manny Tripodis when they were alerted that the incident had taken place. Trowbridge added that the suspect also had hit on her several times during the evening.

"I was hanging out with Manny at the bar; somebody came up and told him that there was a fight. I walked with him toward the front door . . . and this guy who had been trying to dance with me all night had a knife in his hand," Trowbridge said. "[I] put my arm around him and escorted him out. Then that's when I realized he had already been stabbing people outside."

"My friends thought I was crazy," she added.

The man fled the scene, she said, and as patrons flagged down a passing Scottsdale P.D. cruiser.

According to Facebook, the victims were transported to nearby hospitals for treatment. According to Clark, their injuries were not life-threatening. It is unclear whether the suspect is in police custody at this time.

New Times has been unable to reach Tripodis for comment.

Stay tuned for details.

The New Times is a great resource for music and events to go to - NOT for news (sorry) this article is poorly written and really is giving a music venue a bad name. The "story" above makes no sense.. so the guy stabbed away at people then went back in to hit on a girl? nope. 911 was called not a cop flagged down. The emergency response could have been better since someone was bleeding out of their eye. Thanks New Times for trying to get the gossip out only to further speculation.

@Delociraptor I said the same thing lol. Since when do hipsters carry knives? They have nowhere to hide them in their skinny jeans

This was in no way self-defense. people defending themselves do not leave the scene of a crime, and if they do out of fear for their safely, they immediately call the police to report a crime. This man ran away and did not report anything. He brought a knife to a bar, and from what i understand, he legally shouldn't be possessing any weapons. While there was a verbal confrontation, he could have easily left the bar with no injury to himself or others but he was the aggressor and chose to attack one of the victims instead. That is not self-defense. He will get whats coming to him in court.

Knives should be banned. They banned knives in *Insert communist hell hole here* and all violence ceased immediately.

I'm guessing that there are violent incidents all over the valley every weekend. Is the news here that this stabbing took place in a Scottsdale club?

Unfortunately most of this article Contains false information and manufactured incidents... Yes there was a stabbing but this is not the way it went down... Reporting about an issue is great but facts are better. 1 person was stabbed 4 times (back, leg, 2 in the arm) the other was stabbed in the eye where the blade punctured up to an inch deep. It was not over girlfriends as neither of the victims had girlfriends at the event. Please check ur facts and understand the truth behind this attack.

CLOSE IT DOWN just like the Clubhouse .............      right?          Come on - CLOSE IT down ... that's all we need.       Let people stab each other - people need to die anyway, they're scumbags.... The world has a way of weeding out the trash - so what if it happens at the Rogue.

Stab Stab Stab Stab !!!!!!!!!!!!
